It’s been four weeks since my last chemotherapy treatment and boy does it feel GREAT!!! For the most part I am getting back to feeling normal. My tastebuds seem to be back and the sensitivity in my nails has pretty much gone away.
I have been taking the opportunity to get out on my own more since I won’t be able to do much while recuperating from my surgery (a double mastectomy and axillary lymph node dissection scheduled for March 10th). It was really nice being able to pay a visit to my childhood friend Jeff and his wife Jodi recently along with getting out to celebrate our great niece Nadine’s 8th birthday.
Also shown in the video above is a glimpse of the day we spent in Oregon, Wisconsin, getting our car repaired.
So, it’s finally here — my surgery. I have been anticipating this day for months now, and I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel once it arrived. All week I have been thinking this is the last week to have these breasts. I am not really scared, just a little emotional, I guess. I am looking forward to having this behind me and moving forward to getting the radiation underway.
